can be fantastic or very mixed with increased likelihood of poor weather the later you sail. A lot of places on the islands effectively close down from beginning of October as people migrate back to Split, Zadar, Zabreb etc for the winter. Good news is that you will often have decent winds for sailing and there may not be anyone to take your money
on town quays, bad news is that they may remove the buoys and lazylines, turn power and water
off or boats will be overwintering with 4 lazylines each taking much of the available space. Not all marinas
stay open all year round Many restaurants will be shut for the winter and pretty well all those with their own moorings. Water
will still be warmish, air temperature can vary considerably.
What you will have is the place pretty much to yourself.
Recommendations will obviously depend on your charter
base. Use 777 Harbours and Anchorages
to pick places particularly to anchor
, with a view to the likely and possible weather. Religiously monitor
the Croatia VHF
weather broadcasts and act on them. I would ask your charter
base for info on what places are open and suggestions and/or come back here with details as quite a few people on this forum have sailed or overwintered in Croatia.
